Sport journalist Elena Vaitsekhovskaya about Kamila Valieva.
“Over the past year and a half, we have become accustomed to perceiving Kamila Valieva as an unconditional favorite at the competitions. But now the picture has changed. It’s not even that the threat of disqualification and the loss of two senior titles—the crown of the European champion and Olympic team gold—continues to hang over the skater.
From the point of view of sports shape, one can only respectfully curtsy in front of the skater: in the year that has passed since the Beijing Games and been filled with extremely tragic events, Kamila has not gained weight, has not lost her ultra-c, has not lost her desire to compete.
But the effect of novelty in the perception of Kamila on the ice has certainly gone. She can’t be called a clear leader either: she lost the Russian Nationals to the figure skater from her own coaching staff, Sofia Akatieva, and in terms of the level of complexity of the two programs, Adelia Petrosian noticeably surpasses both athletes,” the journalist wrote.
